Thank you very much to Amy Daws for providing a copy of the book to *M*
The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.
What happens when an almost thirty-year-old virgin agrees to let her Scottish footballer best friend give her some lessons in seduction?
Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.
Midfielder Maclay “Mac” Logan is a loud-mouthed, tattooed ginger content with focusing on football. But when an adorably-freckled seamstress comes barreling into his life, he finds Netflix-And-Bickering with her to be his new favorite pastime.
Freya Cook is used to being the invisible woman with a needle and thread, offering cheeky punchlines as she helps dress London’s finest. She’s plus-sized in body and spirit, and other than her friendship with Mac, talking to the opposite sex is one skill she never mastered.
However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.
What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.
Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don’t fall in love with your best friend.
As soon as I heard that Amy Daws was venturing into the wonderful world of the Harris Brothers with a new book, I was beyond ecstatic.
Once the ARC of Blindsided landed on my Kindle I put aside all other books and focused purely on this story. The characters were already familiar, having met them in previous novels in the series but this time we got to know Freya and Mac on a whole other level.
This was a chance for two side characters to become our leading couple and what a couple they are. Daws creates characters that you want to be friends with, a feisty leading lady and a handsome, sensitive leading man. Together they set the pages alight, both with sexual chemistry and their hilarious friendship.
I could not stop reading, I needed to know more about Freya and Mac, to get inside their heads and understand how they work as separate characters. The dual narrative is the perfect tool for readers to see inside the mindset of both Freya and Mac, to fall deeply in love with them both.
Because that is exactly what you do as a reader, fall helplessly in love with two beautiful characters. I saw a lot of myself in Freya, a girl after my own heart, her self confidence growing as the story develops and Mac is the perfect Scottish gentleman. Daws knows how to write her characters, she is utterly invested in them and makes it such a pleasure for the reader.
Words cannot thank Amy Daws enough for creating this world, full to the brim with such lovable characters and one a reader wants to dive head first into. The excitement of a new book by this author is immeasurable, especially one from this series. For me I don’t fall in love with characters easily, but these characters completely have my heart. I loved reading their story and will re-read the entire Harris Brothers series for years to come.
It is safe to say I am completely smitten with Mac and Freya, so much so that I will definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants an truly enjoyable, romantic and funny read. Because they will most definitely not be disappointed.
Please Amy Daws, never stop sharing your talent with the world, you’re an amazing writer and truly beautiful author.
I am will admit I am now a proud Mac Logan fangirl, Roan DeWalt lover and a Harris Ho.
